Publisher's Weekly Review

One must really love pom-poms-those small, ornamental tufts of yarn often used to embellish accessories or clothing-to dive as deeply into them as Ito does in this intricate craft guide. Ito begins with seductive pictures of pom-poms, among them rabbits, dogs, frogs, hamburgers, and an apple pencil-topper. Instructions begin with a discussion of tools and sizing before getting into the basics of making pom-poms, and then the individual projects. She shows how to place eyes to change expressions, how to form shapes with glue, and how to trim. The simplest project makes a chick hair tie and involves little more than wrapping yarn around a plastic base called a pom-pom maker, and making a single cut. The more advanced projects include two- or three-tone figures, like the parakeet or puffer fish, which incorporate up to three strands of yarn at points in the winding process. The projects yield palm-sized works of art that are both adorably cute and painstakingly detailed. Ito's instructive and visually pleasing book will appeal to fans of Amigurumi (crocheted animals) and miniature-making enthusiasts. Color photos. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
